A 17-year-old girl in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad consumed acid after she was 'mentally distressed' as she was being harassed and stalked by a local youth. She has been admitted to a private hospital.
The girl's father has accused the youth of teasing and molesting his daughter while her way to college. He said that his daughter had stopped going to college because of the harassment.
Though the girl has been battling for life since the past few days, the police have registered an FIR only now. "We have started investigations and the accused will be arrested soon," said a police spokesman.
